It pays to be a loyal customer and in the end you won’t mind being a member of JetPrivilege, if the airline keeps making subtle innovations such as the recently introduced JetScreen, the new wireless streaming in-flight entertainment service. This services also demonstrates that Jet Airways does have a plan or two for the smartphone savvy millennials in the country.
The recently introduced service allows customers to stream video content, movies, shows and much more on their personal Wi-Fi enabled smartphone devices. The content consists of Bollywood/Hollywood and regional movies, games etc. The remote streaming also has standard in-flight entertainment features such as 3D flight tracking and access information etc.
The features of this service seem to be the tip of the ice-berg as Jet Airways sees this as the initial step before offering “fully-fledged, broadband-enabled Wi-Fi connectivity”, which will give passengers the ability to browse the internet, send and receive email, access connecting flight information and more.
